When Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, some MPs (Members of Parliament) teased Churchill, who had previously been very hostile to the Soviet Union and had played a key role in Western intervention against the Bolshevists in 1919-21. He replied with the above comment.

When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, Winston Churchill, a vehement anti-Communist, famously stated "If Hitler invaded Hell, I would at least make a favourable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons," regarding his policy toward Stalin. Soon, British supplies and tanks were flowing to help the Soviet Union.
